Power Window does not stop when it reaches the top if I continue to hold the switch.

Asked by Dec 26, 2015 at 06:31 PM about the 1995 Ford F-150 XLT 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If I continue to hold switch on the driver's side power window, it continues to
run and jumps up and down after it has reached the top. It did not used to do
this. It used to go up and stop even if I held the switch. Likewise, it would go
down and stop. As time goes on, I am having to physically help the window
come up. The passenger side works fine. Is the problem the motor?

Yes it's the window motor going bad.

The limit switch on the window motor has gone bad, You will need a new window motor.

If, when you grasp the glass, and pull up while pressing the button, the window works, the window motor/actuator is shot. Not a difficult replacement. A DYI'er can to it. The window regulator is probably about 80 bucks or so. You'll need a drill with a small bit to remove the rivets holding the motor in. Replace with half inch screws inserted from the rear as to not interfere with the movement of the window.

Either the gear on the window motor is worn out or the gear on the window regulator is worn out. HTH. -Jim
